BMW Brand Mini planning to make its last combustion engine in 2025

The BMW brand Mini has presented its strategy for the future. This reaffirms the previously announced goal of the BMW Group to have exclusively purely electrically powered models in the Mini range by the beginning of the 2030s.

Mini also reaffirms the statement that in 2025 the last new Mini model with a pure combustion engine drive will be launched on the market. The Company keeps it open to use Hybrid Models before going fully electric by 2030.

In 2023, Mini will present the first model of a new generation of purely electrically powered vehicles.

“Mini was always the answer to very special challenges for individual mobility. And the willingness to rethink the status quo defines the brand to the present day,” says brand CEO Bernd Körber. “Alongside electromobility, the development of new target groups and sales markets is a key factor for the future of Mini.”

The future core portfolio of battery-electric vehicles will include the Mini three-door as well as one crossover model each in the small car and premium compact segments. Two models developed from the outset for purely electric mobility will be produced in China. Mini has not yet specified which models these will be. But the intention is clear: with local production in China, the brand wants to be able to “participate more strongly than before in the dynamic growth on the Chinese car market”.

In Europe, the successor to the current Mini Countryman will be built at the BMW plant in Leipzig from 2023 onwards with both “electrified drive and combustion engines”.

In addition to increasing electrification, the BMW brand wants to reduce the CO2 footprint per vehicle over the entire product life cycle as a “clear commitment to sustainability”.

According to the statement, this includes targets for the supply chain, the exclusive use of green electricity in production, but also a “steadily growing proportion of natural and recycled materials in the vehicles”.
